Ingredients: Organic Burdock Root.
Herb Description & Ecology: Our organic burdock root is cultivated with great care in the Pacific Northwest. Arctium lappa has a long tradition of use in western herbalism as well as throughout the Far East. This versatile root has a myriad of internal uses and has been used as a food plant in Eastern cuisine. Burdock has been an important botanical in Western folk herbalism and traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years, primarily valued for its cleansing and skin smoothing properties. The entire plant is edible and is a popular vegetable in Asia, particularly in Japan. More recently, burdock has been an ingredient in hair tonics and in cosmetics for mature skin.
